Plans announced for water park in Rapid City


Rapid City will soon be home to a brand new vacation venue.

It is called Rippin' Rapids Water Park.  Developers boast that it will have more than 93,000 square feet of family fun which they hope will be a brand new tourist destination in the Black Hills.

Rapid City developer Robert Akers, Sr. announced that construction will begin this month on the five-story resort.  It will be located on East Mall Drive and Lacrosse Street near Boston's restaurant and the Hilton Garden Inn.

Rippin' Rapids will offer waterslides, tubing rides, rock climbing, zip line, and a rope course.

It will also boast South Dakota's first wave machine for surfing.

The park should be ready for tourists by spring of 2014.
